On CAPS, 93% of the 265 members who have rated Safe Bulkers believe the stock will outperform the S&P 500 going forward.

Just last week, one of those bulls, mythomark, tapped the stock as a particularly attractive turnaround opportunity:

[Safe Bulkers] continues to act prudently in regard to managing cash. They hold enough cash to make the payments on their new ships, and have reserve to commission additional ships moving forward. China is seems to be recovering from their slowdown, and tonnage of dry bulk is moving up slightly. [Safe Bulkers] is in a great position to increase revenue in the short and long term, and to drive increased revenue to the bottom line.

If you want market-thumping returns, you need to put together the best portfolio you can. Owning exceptional stocks is a surefire way to secure your financial future. Of course, despite a strong four-star rating, Safe Bulkers may not be your top choice.
